I've been learning German in Duolingo for 300 days! :)
Today is my special day, because I have learned German here in Duolingo for 300 days. Not just that, I’ve just reached level 21 :-) on the same day. And I changed my username from Adler2302
It’s a good thing that I didn’t give up in learning German, because it has been a hard time mastering the subordinate clauses, reflexive verbs, subjunctives, adverbs, etc.
In the 7th of January 2017, I’ve signed up for attending Goethe Institut. I took a placement test. The results are pretty good and made a big jump to B1.2 without having to attend the A levels :). If I hadn’t studied in Duolingo, I would have started from the beginning in A1!
I would like to give a big thanks to Duolingo for the German course and also the native-speakers of the German language, like: mizinamo, AbunPang, biertopf, AbendBrot and others who have helped me to learn German :). I hope I can finish my German skill-tree before I reach 400 streak-days.
Here are my data about my progress of the German skill-tree:
Started from: (around) May 2016
Coach: Serious (30 XP per day)
Last quiz’s score: 4.92/5.00 (2 weeks ago)
Club (Otto von Bismarck) code: X7YB3P
Number of skills remaining: 111 out of 124 (90%) (Btw, what’s the translation in italic in German?)
Number of lessons remaining: 403 out of 465 (87%)
Estimation for when the skill-tree are all gold/mastered: 24.06.2017 (90%)
(Note: This data was taken by Duolingo’s userscript. Therefore, it may not contain true data since the process of learning might change gradually/dramatically. The words in bold are the exceptions)
Number of screenshots as notes taken: 348
Number of documents as notes made: 29
I would also like to encourage my members of the ‘Otto von Bismarck’ club to keep learning and trying hard to master (at least the essentials) in learning German. Keep up the good work, fellas :)!
I guess that’s all. There are around 300 words in this post. So, bye. Wish you all the best in learning German and niemals kapitulieren. Have a nice day :)

EDIT: If you would like to see my previous streak-day celebration every 100 days, here they are:
Cool! I've given myself a year to become fluent and have been working about an hour everyday to become so. So far my streak is 89 as of today so I still have almost 300 days to go to reach my goal. My current level is 18. Besides Duo, I watch a lot of shows in German, listen to a lot of music, and meet with natives in Skype.
My question is, in your experience, do you think I can make it in a year?
Congrats! I do most of my learning on my cell phone and miss seeing Discussions and discussing sentences in the skill sets. Being from the US I don't understand some of what you wrote about your jump, etc but the important thing is you made good progress - I get that part. Good on you! Have a Lingot!
